MONROVIA, May 23 (LINA) – Montserrado County Senator Geraldine Doe- Sheriff has said her resignation from the Congress for Democratic Change (CDC) is in no way a betrayal of the party, as claimed by two party stalwarts.
She claimed that the party has lost focus of the purpose for which she and other founding members established it, hence the decision to quit.
Senator Sheriff made the statement when she appeared on the Costa Radio Talk Show on FM 102.7 on Friday in Monrovia.
After her resignation Thursday, Sheriff came under criticisms fromCDC stalwarts, Mulbah Morlu and Jefferson Korgee, describing her resignation as a “betrayal of the party” and Ambassador Weah, who gave her an opportunity to be Senator.
She said no matter how members of the party may describe her, the love for she has for members of the CDC will remain unwavering, adding, “My resignation is in no way a betrayal to the party nor Ambassador George Weah”.
Sheriff claimed that her work in the party will speak for itself, citing her scholarship scheme for over 300 CDC partisans and the Geraldine Doe-Sheriff Foundation that presently caters for over 1,000 women aimed at building their capacities.
